Shel Israel – Writer. Speaker. Nice Guy

Dsc01077Today is Chacha Nehru’s birthday, its Children’s Day in India. Chacha is what we call our father’s younger brother’s in hindi, my so-called first language.

While Shel Israel isn’t my father’s younger brother, he was the first blogger [oooh A-lister!] who ever wrote a comment on my blog and taught me how to construct a cohesive post.

We met for lunch at my favourite japanese hole in the wall restaurant on Powell / Washington in SF today. I got to hear first hand about his visit to the Presidential Palace in Estonia, to Ireland, to Sweden and Italy. But I fear I might have to buy the second book Shel will write else he might throw potato croquettes at me again. Did I mention he likes to play with his food?

What else does one say when one gets to meet someone one has only read finally in person? That it is true – the fact that if you subscribe to someone’s writing and enjoy reading it there is a very high likelihood that you will therefore enjoy talking to them and meeting them in person?

    Meeting someone you read is like meeting an old friend for the first time. It was nice meeting you, old friend.
